What is a Block?

A Block contains configurable content that is displayed on a Canvas. Content can be images, text or a video, or it can be interactive features such as Live Chat, Q&A Poll, etc. There can be multiple Blocks on a Canvas. A Block type can be selected when adding a new Block in the Canvas, it defines what type of content is displayed on a Canvas.

Block’s Features

  • Some of the Blocks are highly configurable and can be configurable as per their block type.

  • Once the Block type is selected, it’s recommended to name the Block, so it is easily identifiable when viewed alongside other Blocks on a Canvas. Ensure that the naming convention of the Block follows a standard practice as the name you give to a Block will be visible in reporting as well.

  • Once a Block type is selected, you can now switch to activate it, configure it and add automation.

  • The width of the block is defined as per the Flex it is attached to.

  • Each Block will automatically resize itself as per the Flex it attached itself and the width of the browser window

  • A Block can be made active or inactive. An active block is visible on the Canvas whereas an inactive block is not visible.

  • While each block type has specific configurable options, some common ones are the name of the Block, the title of the Block, visibility start and end time of the Block.
